Watch the endless void of internet content in a real time infographic

A real-time infographic published by PennyStocks shows the mind-blowing amount of activity happening on the Internet on popular sites such as Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Amazon, Skype, Google, Tumblr, Netflix and LinkedIn. When visitors go to the site, they’ll see the amount of data being transferred, accounts being created, blog posts being published and more. As the seconds tick by, the numbers rise exponentially, showing the awe-inspiring amount of activity on the Internet.

The infographic shows specific activities for each site, like the number of posts published on WordPress and Tumblr. The live infographic also shows how many video hours are uploaded and watched on YouTube, the number of reviews published on Yelp, the amount of searches on Google, the number of likes and posts on Facebook, the amount of Pins on Pinterest and more. The chart also shows monetary transactions, with statistics on the money spent on Amazon and the amount of ad revenue generated by Google.

Over the course of one minute, 342,000 Tweets were sent, 27,780 posts were published on Tumblr, 204,166,680 emails were sent, 3,298,560 posts were created on Facebook, 23,160 hours of Netflix were watched and 138,840 hours of YouTube videos were watched.

What this mesmerizing infographic shows is how reliant we are on the Internet, and how much data we’re able to transfer all over the world. From entertainment – watching movies and video clips; to information – sharing blog posts and social media updates; to purchasing what we need, we use the Internet for so many aspects of our daily lives.
